My name is Carol and I am an OFSTED registered Childminder who lives in Burgess Hill. I am also a member of PACEY (which was previously called the National Childminding Association) and have full public liability insurance.
I re-registered with OFSTED in Nov 2012 as a Childminder after a break of 5 years to bring up my youngest daughter. I have 5 children, 3 boys (now aged 27,26,24) and 2 girls (aged 21 and 12). All my older children have left home and I live with my youngest daughter. I offer a happy, caring and secure learning environment and my house is next to beautiful countryside and also within walking distance of Ditchling Common.
I have a full driving licence and my own 7 seater car.
I am a non-smoker and so is the rest of my family.
We have 1 cat and 1 dog.
I have 27 years' experience in childcare, having 5 children of my own but also I was an OFSTED registered childminder from 1992 to 1994 and then again from 2001 to 2007, and have cared for numerous babies, pre-school children, provided after school care for children aged 5-8 and older. I can provide references if required.
I also worked as a Pre-School Assistant at a local pre-school for a year in 2006 to 2007 before I went I maternity leave.
I pride myself in being organised, reliable, flexible and having a good relationship with all parents.
I offer a happy and stimulating learning environment in a friendly, family home with a garden and surrounded by countryside. We go on lots of walks, exploring woodland and the natural habitat, trips to local parks, farms, we do cooking, arts and crafts, games, music, etc.
I have an NVQ Level 3 in Early Years Care and Education and have attended an Early Years Foundation Stage course to meet the current requirements of OFSTED.
I hold a current Paediatric First Aid Certificate.
I am CRB checked as are all members of my family over the age of 16.
As a Childminder I have been on many courses and will continue to do so at weekends or evenings to further my knowledge, some examples of courses I have been on are: Supporting Children in Learning to Read, Working with Parents and Child Protection.
I currently have two full-time vacancies Monday - Friday from 7.30 am - 6.00 pm however I can be flexible if needed.
I do not childmind during the summer school holidays but I can possibly during other school holidays.
I currently do school drop offs and pick ups for Hassocks Infants and Ditchling Primary School but other local nurseries and schools would be considered.
